Our KidStuff Coupon Book fundraiser begins TODAY!!! Your child should have received their coupon book in their backpack today. Here's how it works:
- Take a look through the book, show to friends and family, and place your order! If you are just going to keep the one book, simply send $25 in your money envelope with your child's information on the back. If you are purchasing more than one, just fill out that quantity, send in the payment, and when the fundraiser is over on September 24, we'll send the books home with your child!
- For every 5 books a student sells, you get one FREE!!
- You can order books for many areas in PA, DE, and NJ (they are listed in the book). These books will be ordered for you.
- NEW THIS YEAR - There is an APP!!!! What a great addition! So many of us just use coupons on our phone, rather than walk around with hard copies. This makes life SO much easier!!!
